Machining

From UAV components to microwave Sub Harmonically-pumped mixers (SHM), we seek the highest levels of CNC work available using the latest in 3D CAD-CAM software available from GibbsCAM and Espirit.

Specializing in mid to large volume production CNC machining of aluminum, steel, titanium, and alloy steels, we can accommodate a wide variety of parts with a huge work envelope in turning, milling and EDM (wire and sinker).

Quick setup changes have allowed us to greatly reduce the cost to our customers and stay competitive in the industry. We operate 2 manned shifts and a largely unmanned third shift for lights-out machining.

Recently, we have tackled complex jobs with lead times that some would describe as impossible. We are proud to be on the cutting edge of CNC technology and encourage all new customers to come out and take a tour of our facility to experience firsthand the many machining solutions we offer!

Micro Machining

Our micro machining division is unsurpassed. With some of the best machinists in their class using ultra-modern machines like Yasda, Mori Seiki, Matsuura and Kitamura, tolerances of less than .0002 are routine in our climate controlled clean room.

Our Micro team has recorded machining details smaller than .0002″ in size and accurate to .0001 of an inch. These tolerances are verified through the latest microscope measuring systems available from Nikon and View.

The reputation of our micro division speaks for itself with 100% customer satisfaction. We’ve helped customers out of a bind more than a few times!

EDM Machining

EDM machining is one of our many strengths and capabilities. We routinely machine complex 3D shapes with angles up to 45 degrees within a maximum work envelope of 23.6″ x 15.7″ x 16.7″ capable of using wire sizes of .oo4″-.012″ and resolution of +.000002″ (2 Millionths). Our EDM department operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

EDMs are typically used in tool and die production but have many other applications in manufacturing, aerospace and medical industries. Benefits of EDM machining include the ability to machine hard materials that are difficult to machine using traditional techniques. We typically machine pre-hardened materials without having to soften and then reharden. Materials conducive to EDM machining are any electrically conductive metals including Tool Steel (A2, D2, O1, etc.), Aluminum, stainless steel, hastelloy, monel and inconel.
